On the anniversary of Scottish music festival T in the Park’s 20 anniversary, two impressions might have struck those few who like to analyse their festivals rather than just file the memories away for a rainy day. They both go hand in hand – namely, that this is a festival which has exorcised the two-decade shadow of The Stone Roses’ ghost following their long, long-awaited headline appearance last year, and that it’s consequently one of the first to embrace a belatedly 21-century line-up in which futurist pop has at least as big a role to play as trad guitar rock.
